Abstract:As we look both to newer applications and to achieving the next level of ILP, more sweeping program transformations are called for, but the compiler is today hard pressed to deliver stable transformations with current techniques. High-performance compilation of nonnumeric codes for EPIC chafes against programming style and control flow structure. This dissertation provides a thoroughgoing evaluation of the classical approach to ILP formation in an extant EPIC system, illustrating the circumstances that dictate the success of EPIC features in achieving high performance in contemporary benchmarks.
